Course objectives

The main objective of the course will be to advance the student's knowledge of the use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques that together with neuroimaging have contributed to the recent development of cognitive neuroscience. Their use will be considered, especially in relation to the study of the neural bases of cognitive functions and in relation to some of the main topics of cognitive psychology and neuropsychology. The use of brain stimulation as a potential tool of intervention for the treatment of brain pathologies will be also presented.

Results of learning outcomes

At the end of the course, students will know the theoretical basis of the main non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (e.g., TMS and tES), the relative guidelines for their safe and correct use, the different types of stimulation protocols for the study of cognitive processes in healthy individuals and their potential for brain functions rehabilitation.
